Adams County received around $12 million in total American Rescue Plan Act monies. The county received half of that in May 2021 and the other half in May 2022.
About eight new board members were given an update on the various projects finished with the money at a meeting conducted by Adams County officials on Monday.
Bret Austin, vice chairman of the county board, stated that roughly 35 local initiatives related to infrastructure, wastewater treatment, information technology, and community outreach have benefited from ARPA financing.
Austin claimed that efforts were being made to improve the quality of life for locals by strengthening the infrastructure of rural Adams County communities.
“We focused on the infrastructure stuff and you know hopefully the fruit that’ll come from that is that those townships, those areas can grow, maintain their population and have good quality in their community for where they want to live,” Austin said.
Before that document was made public, Austin stated that a meeting on public finance would be convened here to discuss project specifics. The County Board Room of the Adams County Courthouse will host the meeting on Monday at 6:00 p.m.
